So, including TWIAs $400 million Alamo Re II Pte. Ltd. (Series 2020-1) catastrophe bond issuance and $200 million of Alamo Re Ltd. (Series 2019-1) cat bonds, the insurer now has $1.1 billion of multi-year reinsurance from disaster bonds, with staggered maturity dates.
That will benefit TWIA as it goes into future reinsurance renewals, as the multi-year and staggered nature will likely make it more affordable over the long-term.
All of TWIAs reinsurance tower provides aggregate defense, indicating the insurance provider is covered need to multiple storms strike Texas this year.
The insurer commented, “TWIA will start another cyclone season in a strong financial position with access to $4.03 billion secured for the 2021 storm season. To satisfy the Associations statutory funding requirement to react to a 1-in-100-year storm season, the financing consists of $1.9 billion in reinsurance attaching above the $2.1 billion in statutory funding sources.”
Obviously, this year TWIAs program might have been much bigger, as the insurance companies personnel had actually deliberated over buying an additional nearly $1 billion of security.
That would have included another disaster bond, as TWIA was targeting to continue mixing alternative and conventional reinsurance sources in the additional layer, if it had been acquired.
TWIAs Board ended up ballot versus securing the additional security, deciding that taking its financing up above the 1-in-100 year statutory level and asking insurers in Texas to pay member assessments for it was unneeded.
